    Vander Esch finished with 14 total tackles and Heath added 10 himself. The few Whites allowed to play defense are constantly amongst the top tacklers.

    Dak Prescott had 208 passing yards in a game that went for 68 minutes. Part of me is glad that the Cowboys play in primetime week in and week out because the whole country gets to see what a ******* joke this "meritocratic" league is.

    Kittle’s 45-yard reception on the TE screen was great, what a superb athlete with speed and acceleration much faster than I’ve seen from the vast majority of receivers and defensive backs in a game situation and not just running without pads or opponents in a straight line for 4-5 seconds. And remember Kittle is 6’4 and 250lbs. 399 yards in 5 games so far this season, should hit 1,000 if he stays healthy. Kittle is also an excellent blocker, if he stays reasonably healthy he should have a long and very successful NFL career.

    All five (5) of our guys (Thielen, Ertz, Kelce, Kupp, and Kittle) that were on pace for 1,000 yards had great games yesterday. Hopefully Gronkowski can have some big games over the next few weeks and get back in the mix, too.

    Anyway, here’s the play you’re referring to. Kittle’s acceleration looks like a young Travis Kelce...

    Adam Theilen is the biggest threat to the caste system right now! He is by far the best receiver in the league and every time the announcers say "undrafted", the average fan has to stop and ask how? Why? Will he get endorcements? Will he get the media he deserves?

    Wow, looks fast and explosive as hell. He hit that hole and was gone faster than many running backs or wide receivers would have been. Super athlete.

    Also, you forgot 1 other player on pace for a thousand yard season, Jordy Nelson. After 5 games, Nelson has 317 yards. When extrapolated out he’d finish with 1,014 yards.

    Wow, that is some serious acceleration. He looks like a running back on that play.

    According to Caste System mythology Whites are incapable of serious acceleration as running backs, receivers, safeties and cornerbacks.

    I saw this real time and was impressed with his raw real field speed with gear on. I saw him pulling away from several affelets. If he more room on the sidelines he would have scored.

    Breaking news. They are bringing the guillotine back. Village square tomorrow in Nashville. I understand Quasimodo and Esmeralda will be in attendance. White WR Nick Williams drops a key pass and his fate has been set. There was talk about the gallows but everyone figured the guillotine would be more appropriate. Word on the street is that future white wide receivers are considering dropping out for fear of similar restitution. Fair is fair.

    In that game Josh Allen had another clip worthy TD run as the Bills stalled the dreaded Titans. Watch him dodge the entire Titans D for pay dirt.

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-.../Josh-Allen-can-t-be-caught-on-14-yard-TD-run

    The past two weeks have been 'livable" and while I am not quite as harsh of Cam Newton as many here despite a couple of nifty plays he was dreadful yesterday. In fact Carolina as a team looked bad and were lucky to win against the ghastly Giants. Kicker booms a field goal from another county to bail them out.

    Yes Cooper Kupp was picked up and slammed on his head by LB Mingo one of those LSU products that everyone drools over at draft time but ends up being a mediocre at best NFL player.
    Black defenders clobbering white WRs in the skull has been a traditional ritual through the years and I thought the new rules would curb it. Sadly the refs just like the Kelce playoff game last year mentioned above ignored it altogether.

    Whereas the AFC South is Halloween come early the AFC North has two teams that aren't awful in terms of caste, The Bengals and Steelers. TJ Watt like so many other white defenders yesterday played like a monster from the deep.

    Speaking of defenders Dallas would normally fold like a tent without LB Sean Lee but EBV was outstanding in all facets of the game last night. A star is born And the most underrated player in all of the NFL in my mind is S Jeff Heath. And to think they have been itching to replace him. One thing that will keep me glued to the set is a team with two terrific white defenders. Makes me enjoy the game for a change. And of course JJ Watt was wrecking havoc for Houston although I would have preferred Dallas to have won.

    Tonight the Saints with all purpose Taysom Hill and rangy LB Alex Anzalone take on the Redskins with QB Alex Smith and perhaps S/ST Troy Apke who I hope is back after missing two weeks.

    [Update Apke is out tonight. Crap. Hell he was never injured at Penn State and all of a sudden he has issues?]

    Vander Esch is great. Coming out of college, the few honest evaluators out there were comparing him favorably to Brian Urlacher. When the Bills traded back into the 1st round and he was still on the board with a desperate need for a MLB, I was really hoping they would take him. Instead, they took Tremaine Edmunds who looks lost out there at times, even with the mic in his helmet. The Cowboys grabbed him 3 picks later and it was a good move for sure. As usual, the majority of evaluators out there said that Vander Esch was "too tall" to play MLB while touting Edmunds, who is 3/4" taller at the same time !!! Urlacher was the same height as Vander Esch and it certainly didn't have a negative impact on his game/career.

    Maybe Buffalo will do the right thing and replace Alexander next year with a pale skinned edge rusher out of college. 2 out of 3 is not bad with the Paisan Milano.

    Heath is absolutely one of the most unsung players in the league. Had he come along prior to 1990 (or so) he'd have already been named to the Pro Bowl at least once...If he played in the 1970's and into the 1980's he'd undoubtedly be a huge fan favorite like Charlie Waters and Cliff Harris were, instead of a constant "punching bag" for DWF's and racist, clueless non-white fans...Heck, given Heath's speed, he probably would've played at Michigan or Michigan State AND been an NFL cornerback?

    By the way, Waters seemed to be one heck of a caste-clown as an NFL (Broncos) and college (Oregon) coach in the 1990's -- almost Del Rio like? Glad he was run out of (or left) coaching fairly fast and never was a head coach.



    As far as Leighton Vander Esch, he really reminds me of Rob Fredrickson (height, build, athletic ability), who was a Raiders 1st round pick in 1994 and long-time NFL starter. I remember even the Caste stools at ESPN said it was shocking he never made the Pro Bowl -- especially after a stunning season in 1999.

    Oops I meant LVE not EBV for Vander Esch in my above post. I thought I would simplify his name and ended up butchering it even more.

    I was a young pup but Cliff Harris see above is still my all time favorite safety. Could run like a deer ( I don't recall a WR ever running away from him) and could hit like a torpedo. Should be in the HOF. This was before my "caste" think but I was a huge Cowboys fan back then. I liked Staubach and Tony Dorsett. Of course Dorsett turned out to be a real caste ******* saying blacks are superior athletes.

    The other defensive stud on that team I was a great fan of was DT Randy White. They called him "Manster." He started his career off as a LB but they moved him to the line. He revolutionized the position with his off the chart quickness. He was a one man wrecking crew. Just ask Denver during the Super Bowl. What a fun defense to watch.

    I remember Charlie Waters too of course but wasn't too crazy about him. Charlie was not very fast but he could hit and was very savvy and effective. He was smart unlike the idiot black DBs we have to suffer through today.

    I long for the day when we can get back to defenses that featured a half dozen or more white players. Real football. Not this half ass undisciplined crap that passes as football today.

    The Cowboys were my favorite team as a kid growing up. I still believe Staubach is one of the 5 best QB's of all time!
    ….and I liked Charlie Waters too! If he wasn't very fast, I guess he didn't have to prove it to get interceptions. He had 41 in his career. He also holds/shares the NFL record for most INT's in the playoffs 9, including 3 in one playoff game. He also holds the distinction of blocking 4 punts in 2 consecutive games! Quite an accomplishment to be slow.

    The powerhouse Cowboys, Raiders, Dolphins and Steelers teams of the 1970s and into the '80s had a number of great White players on both sides of the ball in a league that had been thoroughly integrated for quite some time. What a shame that one day circa 1985, Whites became permanently incapable of playing running back, wide receiver, and defense.

    Congratulations to Drew Brees! Always humble, a class act and a great role model, he overcame a lack of "ideal height" to become the most prolific passer in NFL history. And he's still playing at an extraordinary level as he nears the age of 40.

    The Redskins have such a comical collection of "talent" at the skill positions. Once I saw Michael Floyd on the field for them I though Go Saints. Won't surprise me to see Snyder draft a quotaback again next year. The Redskins have been one of the blackest teams in the league since I started following football and they have had no success in 26 years.

    Of course everybody ages differently but all you have to compare Brees to Vick and the way two aged.

    Brees was an early 2nd round pick because he was viewed as too small height and girth wise, yet "Jesus" Vick was drafted number at the same listed height and marginally larger girth wise.

    Vick while looking spectacularly rushing early in his career, was constantly on the trainers table and never learned how to pass until his body was breaking down in Philly. Brees has never had constant injuries and overcame a potential career ending shoulder injury.

    Brees could have a good 3 to 5 years of elite football left in his body if his mind is willing to compete. Simply mind blowing....

    Snyder while impulsive and stupid has a huge investment in Smith. Smith should get a good 2 years to make a deep playoff run before there pressure to draft a top flight qb prospect.
